Dear Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England,

Dear Sirs,

I would be grateful if you could let me have copies of correspondence you have had, or guidance you have given, to planning authorities with regards to the installation of double glazing in listed buildings, when replacing original windows in listed buildings.

Also, what plans there are to change any guidance and policy - please could you provide notes that you may already have.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Cornelius,

 

Re: Information Response – Permissions for standard double glazing in
grade II listed homes

 

Thank you for your email on 23 January in which you requested the
following information:

o 'I would be grateful if you could let me have copies of correspondence
you have had, or guidance you have given, to planning authorities with
regards to the installation of double glazing in listed buildings,
when replacing original windows in listed buildings.
o Also, what plans there are to change any guidance and policy - please
could you provide notes that you may already have'. 

Your request has been processed under the Environmental Information
Regulations (2004) and having consulted with my colleagues, I am able to
provide the following information:

 

As mentioned in previous correspondence, unless a building is listed at
grade I or II* (less than 4% of all listed buildings) we would not get
involved at all as grade II buildings fall within the remit of the Local
Authority (with the exception of London).

 

However, our advice is available as free downloadable guidance:
Traditional Windows, their care, repair and upgrading ( Feb 2017). This is
our main advice on windows. It is currently up to date and we have no
plans to change it at present.

 

Section 6 covers our policy regarding changing windows in listed buildings
There is also much information regarding technical issues associated with
the thermal upgrading of windows in Section 4

I hope this information is useful to you. Details of our review procedure
are attached.

 

Kind regards,
